Magic of the Every Day

"There is power in the magic of the everyday" is a statement made by Laurell Hamilton on her blog about her new book. This statement really made me think about what is truly possible on a daily basis and how important it is to live in the moment. So often I find myself waiting for those "big moments" to define my life... another birthday, another deadline, the next class to be taught... this list goes on and on!

The new year is nearly upon us. I don't normally make a formal resolution list but I do choose a few ideas where I want to focus my attention. This idea of finding and exploring the power of the everyday magic will surely be foremost in my thoughts for 2010.

Here is a close-up of some roses I just painted.

Happy New Year Patte! I hope your holidays were wonderful and filled with joy. I absolutely love your roses, they are gorgeous. A also dont' really make formal resolutions but kind of a "to do" list for the year. ;-)
